Great Sound for Small Spaces,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Altec Lansing Octiv Mini Speaker System for iPhone and iPod (Black) (Electronics)
This is our third Octiv Mini and are immensely pleased with the product. Don't expect a speaker that costs less than a few value meals at McD's to fill your house with music...but you may be stunned at the quality of the sound. This third Mini is destined for my 8 yo daughter's room as she is the music buff of the house. For a 12x12 bedroom or office, the sound is perfect. Plenty loud to satisfy the ear and plenty quiet to keep the windoes from shaking!
My wife and I both have fairly slim cases with our iPhones and they fit fine without issue. However, both my kids have the Otterbox Defender and you will need an adapter or male/female cable to use this speaker while inside the Defender. Not an issue and still a bargain after factoring in an extra cable.
All sound functions work as expected and charging is effortless. Ours have found heavy use as: nightly sound "white noise" machines, morning news and podcast player, and of course the evening dance off with the kids! We do have a quality, room-filling dock for use in the center of our home, but that unit was over 20 times the cost. This little gem certainly has its place and will satisfy all but audiophiles for small space Apple audio.
VERY small footprint!
Great sound (within reason)!
Well-constructed and up for daily use by the family!
